No matter what happens in this week’s district tournament, the 2017-18 Steelville High School basketball season will go down as the best in the school’s history. For the second season in a row, both the varsity boys’ and girls’ teams had 20-win seasons, they both won a Gasconade Valley Conference (GVC) championship, and they were both undefeated in conference play.
Steelville Elementary Principal Stephanie Billingsley will be moving to serve in that role at the middle school next year. The school board made the decision to move Billingsley from the elementary to the middle school during executive session at the board meeting on Thursday, February 15. School staff members were informed of the upcoming change during meetings held on Friday.
